Page keeping everything open

One prospect aiming to make a splash for the 2007 season is Mesquite, Texas quarterback Kelly Page. A three year starter for the Skeeters, Page was named 12-5A newcomer of the year as a sophomore but was limited to four games as a junior after suffering a torn ACL in the fifth game of the season.

In the four games he played, Page threw for nearly 800 yards while adding 400 on the ground. Needless to say, Page is looking to pick up where he left off before the injury. Although his season was cut short, it hasn't stopped teams from showing the dual-threat signal caller interest.

Still without an offer, Page is getting interest from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Kansas State, Kansas, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, and TCU among several others.

"I'm open to everything right now," he said. "I don't really have a favorite at this time."

Page is looking at several factors to help make his decision on where he would like to attend college.

"I'm looking at how great the academics are," he said. "I'd like to go somewhere that has good engineering, but if they don't that's okay. I'm also looking at how high the graduation rate is for the players. Academic facilities are a plus, really I'm just looking at the place that will give me a homey feeling that feels like home."

One team Page is hearing from is TCU and he admits that the proximity to Mesquite is a plus.

"TCU just sends a lot of mail right now," he said. "I haven't heard from them any other way. I would have an interest in them, I mean they're real close to home."

The 6-foot-3, 199 pounder has attended junior days at Arkansas, Oklahoma State, and SMU and says he will attend any junior days can.

"I was going to go to A&M this weekend," he said. "I couldn't make it down there though. I will attend any junior days I get invited to."

Page is planning to attend both the Nike Camp and Combine in the future.
